With Chouchin, the young French designer manages to convey all the poetry of oriental tradition through an unprecedented material, namely painted blown glass. Simple and stylish, Chouchin teams unique craft-based expertise with a modern and strikingly simple style. The Chouchin family comprises 3 models with a coloured matt glass body (an orange suspension, a grey suspension and an elongated green one) which casts an intense and warm beam of light onto the underlying surface.
This year, beside the first version, Foscarini is launching a new one: Chouchin reverse.
The shapes are the same but the colours have been inverted; the diffuser is now white while the collar stays the same colour as the previous shape. It is not just about a new colour, but rather a new light, a new use even.
Indeed, Chouchin reverse, thanks to the pale blown glass diffuser, not only directs light downwards – like the original Chouchin - but it also diffuses a brilliant, flowing and emotional light into its surroundings.
Chouchin and Chouchin Reverse are two complementary models of an extremely poetic model with a strong decorative value. All the versions can be used individually or in highly scenic compositions: the perfect blend of tradition and modernity.
